Abstract
Strong relationships have been developed between global and local phenomena in one season and precipitation in the next season. The relations explain more than 50% of the variance in the precipitation for areas up to 500,000 square kilometres and more than 80% of the variance for smaller areas. The relations apply only to certain years which are indicated by the range in which a third variable falls. This form of forecasting based on partitioning of observed data has the potential to provide reliable three month ahead forecasts of precipitation for large regions.
